Meet Kevin O'Rourke
Born and raised in Kansas City, I was thrilled to be coming home to work at Kansas City’s only essential hospital. After residency, ultrasound fellowship, and a few years working as an attending in New York, my wife and I decided to move to Kansas City to start our family. I currently serve as the Director of Clinical Operations for the Emergency Department and Associate Program Director for the residency. These two jobs overlap nicely and lead me to find ways to improve the clinical experience in the Emergency Department. I see this as helping both our patients and the residents who take care of them. My academic interests include ultrasound, bedside teaching, quality improvement, and answering emails.
